OptaGest Prebiotic Digestive Aid
We discovered these amazing products at a feed store in Ft. Collins Colorado while on vacation two summers ago and are proud as can be to be the only Texas retailer of In Clover Products!!
In our (ever so humble) opinion, this outstanding woman-owned Colorado company has gotten it all right!!! Their products combine the wisdom of many traditions, are double-blind placebo tested(which is more than you can say about most supplements for people!)with amazing results, and have NO clinical side effects! Since we have joint and digestive “issues” in our family, our dogs have appreciated these fantastic supplements for two years! We swear by them, really, we do!
We are absolutely convinced that there’s not a better joint or digestive supplement for dogs available, period!
It’s shocking to us that 6.5 million dogs suffer from chronic digestive problems.* These problems may include symptoms such as: gas, diarrhea, bloating, poor coat and/or excessive shedding, skin odor, bad breath, and nausea. Digestive enzymes can be easily destroyed by the normal processing of commercial pet food. External conditions such as travel, separation, strenuous exercise, storms, diet change, etc., can cause anxiety or stress that may reduce digestive efficiency. Also as the body ages, just like with us, fewer enzymes are produced.
Adding a prebiotic (food for healthy bacteria in the gut) to your sweet pup’s food helps those friendly bacteria thrive and makes the whole digestive system work happier and healthier! OptaGest® replenishes the enzymes that help process fats, carbohydrates and protein, easing the burden placed on the digestive system and working to heal it, naturally. The plant enzymes are stable at the low pH of a dog’s gastrointestinal tract, which means they’ll be effective from esophagus to tail! The prebiotic, FOS, feeds the native bacteria that naturally replenish these essential enzymes.

OptaGest® may be especially helpful for older dogs, those with tender tummies, and for intestinal re-balancing after a course of antibiotics. People have reported improvement in as little as three days.
Our dogs enjoy a dash of OptaGest® in their raw food daily. (of course, digestive enzymes are meant to supplement healthy food and yummy B4P! treats, not act as a substitute in the case of poor quality food)
What Makes OptaGest® Different?
OptaGest® is the ONLY complete digestive aid for dogs that contains NO FILLERS, such as Lactose, Sugar or Preservatives. Fillers may cause further digestive upset.
OptaGest® contains CLINICALLY TESTED levels of the prebiotic, FOS. FOS ferments in the large intestine, providing food for the naturally-occurring intestinal flora.
OptaGest® contains 4 plant-based enzymes to support proper digestion and absorption of nutrients throughout the ENTIRE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM.
OptaGest® is a tasty, slightly sweet powder that pets enjoy.
